Malaria is one of the most common diseases in Africa. Left untreated, it causes high fever, chills, muscle spasms and leaves the patient very susceptible to other dangerous diseases. Thankfully, it is easily treated with medication and thus passes quickly. Our president Mateusz learned this first hand – he caught malaria on his last trip to Africa.
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
